Combining stunning turquoise ocean with awe-inspiring desert landscapes, the Anantara Desert Islands Resort & Spa is located on the northern coast of the Sir Bani Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. Exceptional luxury coupled with world-class service and a choice of fantastic activities will guarantee a holiday you’ll never forget.
Featuring fabulous artwork and traditional furnishings, not to mention staggering views of the Arabian Gulf or tropical gardens, each of the resort’s sumptuous rooms and suites oozes luxury. Basic amenities include private balconies, rain showers and minibars. Meanwhile, private plunge pools, direct beach access and outdoor showers are all potential extras.
Taste the world
The resort boasts three superb restaurants to choose from. Al Shams offers a delicious selection of authentic Arabian dishes, while Amwaj serves up delectable seafood beside the pristine beach. Be sure to taste the Palm’s excellent buffet breakfast, where everything from the cuisine to the décor is firmly Middle Eastern. For a change of scenery, why not head to one of Anantara’s other two resorts on the island and sample the Italian cuisine at Olio or African delicacies at Savannah Grill and Lounge? You can even design your very own dining experience, tailored to your every wish.
Make your holiday your own
Rest, relax and revitalise at the wondrous Anantara Spa. Indulge in one of the fabulous treatments, which include a range of invigorating scrubs, soothing body wraps and energising massages. For something extra special, why not choose to enjoy your treatment beside the sea on one of the Spa Beach Cabanas?
Cool off by taking a dip in the resort’s glorious infinity pool surrounded by lush gardens, or take advantage of the tennis and fitness facilities. Soak up the sun on the gorgeous white sands, snorkel in the crystalline waters or explore the coastline on horseback.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
